Over the last few years, vinyl flooring has seen a surge in popularity. In fact, as far as flooring options go, vinyl only trailed carpet, beating out ceramic tile, hardwood, laminate, and concrete to take second in terms of the flooring industry’s market share! What’s not to like? Vinyl is durable, easy to install, family-friendly, and easily treatable if they get scuffed or spilled on. If you have jumped aboard the vinyl floor train, Circle A Janitorial has some tips on how to best take care of your floor.
Odds are you already have what you need to clean your vinyl floors in your home! To start out, all you need is a broom and a dustpan or a vacuum to remove dirt, dust, crumbs, and other grime (including hair) before you mop. This will make sure that the floors are actually getting cleaned rather than just wiped down with some water and that no residue is left behind. Then, use two ingredients you most likely already have to treat your vinyl flooring: one of the best ways to clean vinyl flooring is to mix one cup of apple cider vinegar with a gallon of hot water. You can also substitute white vinegar if you would like to disinfect your floors as you go or if you don’t have any apple cider vinegar in your home. If you have hard scuffs or stains that don’t come out with normal cleaning, try dampening a cleaning eraser with water and gently scrubbing to remove the marks. Your resilient vinyl flooring shouldn’t need much more than regular cleaning if you take care of them!
